It should really not be too big of a challenge for the hosts since it’s fair to say the Reds opened the new season in a rather disappointing manner. They sit only sixth after seven rounds and they took just a single point from last two domestic ties with Eupen and Charleroi.

Sevilla vs Standard Liege: Head-to-head

The two outfits were drawn into the same Europa League group four years ago.

Los Rojiblancos took four points from matches against Standard Liege back then (0-0 and 3-1).

The Reds were more successful when the two teams met each other in the 2008/09 group phase, winning the lone game 1-0 on the home patch.

Sevilla vs Standard Liege: Prediction

Pablo Machin is still looking for the winning formula at the start of the new season. Sevilla are just not pulling any trees under his guidance. The team has huge issues with the efficiency in the final third. They’ll come into this after failing to find the back of the net in back-to-back defeats to Real Betis and Getafe.

It’s a bitterly disappointing record with the likes of Nolito, Andre Silva, Quincy Promes and Wissam Ben Yedder in their ranks. The good news for the Spanish manager is his men’s fine defensive form, particularly in this competition.

Los Rojiblancos did not concede more than a single goal in six qualifying games as they cruised past the likes of Ujpest, Zalgiris and Sigma Olomouc winning each of six matches in the process.

Knowing Standard failed to score in three of last four matches away from home in all competitions, we just have to take the hosts to keep a clean sheet at 2.00 as the main betting option. Also, since the hosts were also struggling for goals lately, the perfect alternative option would be Under 2.5 goals FT at the 2.40 odds.

Sevilla vs Standard Liege: Bet Tips

• Sevilla to keep a clean sheet @ 2.00 (1/1)

• Under 2.5 goals FT @ 2.40 (7/5).
